Why do brakes wear out?

Modern vehicles have pads and rotors as opposed to older vehicles with drum brakes, the wearing out process is the pads clamping onto the rotor to slow the vehicle down. Naturally as the pad is softer than the rotor the pad material wears out, this is why alloy wheels will show black dust all over them. Often a warning light will appear on the dash when either the brake fluid gets low or the brake pads wear to there limit. Brake fluid is also an important part of the braking system and needs to be replaced periodically, this fluid can become contaminated from moisture and generally braking down as it can be subject to high brake temperatures. Drum style brakes will last considerably longer but need to be checked and cleaned out by removing the drums periodically.

Can I check my brakes?

Checking the brake material should be left to the professionals but you can check the brake fluid level which should not really go down much and can only be topped up with the correct fluid and as marked on the reservoir cap.
